By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
Opposition politicians yesterday met in Nairobi, Kenya, demanding accountability from the Kampala establishment about the dozens of people who were killed during the November 18, 2020 riots.
The sporadic protests ensued across the country, especially around the central region after the arrest of National Unity Platform party presidential candidate, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi, in Luuka District.
Opposition leaders, including Robert Kyagulanyi, four-time presidential candidate Col (Rtd) Kizza Besigye, Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu, the Alliance for National Transformation leader, attended the conference.
Kyagulanyi and Dr Besigye appealed to the international community to join hands with Ugandans in such times as loss of lives during a political activity, indicating that their silence could affect the way human rights violations are viewed.
